She Saw A Student Crying About Her Dad, What She Did Next Is Life Changing!


When this teacher from Iowa noticed that one of her students was very sad, she decided to take the child aside and talk to him. She wanted him to know that she would support him no matter what. That’s when she learned that the boy was having some problems at home.

It was a typical session between Nancy Bleuer, a 54-year-old teacher in her classroom but one student whom she noticed, the 4-year-old boy named Camden was very sad.

With the built trust of the student towards his devoted teacher, the boy explained everything and revealed that his 34-year-old dad, Darreld Peterson was sick.

It broke Bleuer’s heart. She understood what kind of a toll a health problem can have on a family. She wanted to know if there was a way for her to help. She hated seeing one of her students suffering.

Camden then went into all the details. His father was suffering from complete kidney failure. Doctors said that Petersen’s kidneys were only operating at twenty percent of their normal capacity.

For the last few months, Petersen had been undergoing dialysis treatment. But these treatments left Petersen very weak and sick. The man needed a kidney transplant if he was going to recover and be around for his boy as he grew older.

“It wasn’t until I ended up going to the ER and my doctor, the next day during a follow-up — she noticed that my hemoglobin count was extremely low and they did a biopsy that showed 20 percent [kidney] function,” Petersen recalled his statement.

Soon before good things are about to happen, Bleuer learned from a test that she is a match to become an organ donor for Peterson.

“I was excited about it, I was ecstatic. I don’t know what I would’ve done for closure if I wasn’t [a match].” Bleuer said in a statement.

Her generosity and the positive results just became a perfect combination for her to save her student’s dad.

“It’s just amazing, people are waiting every day for a kidney, for an organ in general. I wish there were more people like her. She’s giving me a second chance at life.” Petersen said in his interview.

But of course, a heart made out of gold is surely appreciative and Bleuer said in response, “Here was Darreld [Petersen] and his son with a dozen huge roses, and I’m crying, but, of course, it was very nice, and the day he found out, I said, ‘We’re on, it’s ago.” 

 “It was a very cool response, and it’s good to know that I’ll be able to go to Camden’s high school graduation one day and talk about this and think, ‘Well, that was crazy,” she added.

What could be more heroic than this?
